The 3' UTR of the mouse Hmga2 cDNA (BC052158) was subcloned into pCR2.1-TOPO (Invitrogen) for site-directed mutagenesis. To disrupt each let-7 complementary site, the nucleotides that paired to nucleotides 3 and 5 of the miRNA were substituted (see Author's map), using the Quikchange site-directed mutagenesis kit (Stratagene). To construct the Renilla luciferase reporters, wild-type and mutant Hmga2 3' UTRs were amplified (PCR primers, 5'-GCGTCTCGAGGGGCGCCGACATTC and 5'GGCGCGGCCGCAGTCAGAGGGCACAC) and cloned into the XbaI and NotI sites of pIS1.
